Document-Based Review Exercises

UNIQUE TO MELVIN, BUSINESS LAW AND STRATEGY 1E! Document-Based Review Exercises (DBRE) are designed to help students connect the various topics covered in a single unit. DBREs challenge students to analyze significant evidence such as legal documents, periodicals, data, and photos or editorial cartoons that are related to strategic legal dilemmas. These exercises encourage students to think critically and strategically and connect several concepts and sources when they prepare their answers. The DBREs are a part of Connect, McGraw Hill’s digital platform for assignment and assessment. DBREs include both auto-graded questions and questions that require manual grading. The DBREs’ multipart format permits instructors to customize which portions of the DBREs they would like to assign.
